Spiritual Education and Enrichment (SEE) Field Courses
A field course is a course of study taken at a Unity church or ministry. All field courses must be taught by a Licensed Unity Teacher (LUT) or a Unity Minister. Field courses can be taken for education, knowledge, spiritual enrichment and growth. There are two categories of field courses: 1. For credit or 2. Not for credit.
Students who take field courses for credit must either register before the course is offered on the UWSI website, or the LUT or minister must submit an official grade report form after the course is completed. There is a $45 registration fee for each course taken in the field for credit. If the course is promoted on the UWSI website, a student can register and pay that fee on this page: UWSI (geniussis.com). If the instructor chooses not to promote their course on the website, the instructor must submit an official grade report form after the course is taught with a $45 check from each student. If the ministry is paying for a number of students, a single check with the total amount due for all students combined must accompany the grade report form. For example, if a ministry pays for 4 students to take Foundations of Unity, a check in the amount of $180 must accompany the grade report form.
Effective January 1, 2023, students who want to take a field course for credit must register for the course before the course ends. Students requesting course registration after a course has ended will not be granted credit and will be required to re-take the course. UWSI encourages students to register for credit for each course just in case their path leads to a leadership position within the Unity ministry.
Effective January 1, 2022, all field course students registering for credit must submit the one-time only, non-refundable $35.00 UWSI Enrollment Fee. UWSI will house all course credits and issue transcripts for students upon request. UWSI will also transfer any courses taken with Unity Urban Ministerial School (UUMS) upon request.
UWSI supports and promotes field courses. If a student discovers that a course is not available, our staff will recommend a field course.
